The Turner Diaries and 9/11

by Jack McCarthy

The post-September 11th guessing game rages on.

Did the U.S. government know beforehand that the World Trade Center would be attacked?

Who is responsible for delivering unsolicited anthrax mail?

I recently bumped into my old Iranian friend Ali, a fundamentalist of the Khatami stripe who monitors Middle East news the way bookies follow horse races.

I asked Ali two questions. One, what was the most interesting thing he’d read on the events of September 11th. And two, did he think the anthrax attacks were foreign or domestic.

Ali said the most interesting stuff he’s read-gulp– was the pre-Sept 11th radio speeches of neo-nazisms answer to Dr.Strangelove, Dr. William Pierce.

Upon perusing his speeches from 1998-99 I discovered that Pierce, who heads the so-called “National Alliance, ” did indeed utter some most interesting(pre-Sept 11th)–if not prophetic–remarks about Osama bin Laden and bio-terrorism.

The running theme in Pierces commentaries is–to paraphrase his hero Hitler-that Osama Bin Laden’s warning to America is “I Am Coming.” And so is bio-terrorism.

In one chilling commentary Pierce, (after noting that Bin Laden and the rest of the lost generation of angry Moslem youth had it with their parents’ compromises and were hell bent on revenge against infidel America) issued this stark, prophetic warning in a 1998 radio address titled, “Stay Out of Tall Buildings.”

“New Yorkers who work in tall office buildings anything close to the size of the world trade center might consider wearing hard hats…” Pierce warned.

With Hitchenesque flair, Pierce, in another broadcast made during the Clinton presidency, rails against the sodomitic Bill Clinton who only had two goals in life: personal pleasure(sex) and serving those who sponsored him (Jews).

Pierce, in another surreal but interesting commentary, goes on to second the emotion of Osama Bin Laden, who in a speech which he could well have given after reading Hitchens’ anti-Clinton screed “No More Lies”) issues a blood curdling warning to the majority of Americans who continued to support Clinton despite his sexual dalliances. Those who support their “dissolute President” Osama(seconded by Pierce) warns, are fair game for destruction and annihilation.

Readers of Pierce’s oft cited classic which allegedly spawned Tim McVeigh, “The Turner Diaries” will be aware that one of Pierces vivid scenarios in the plot of the far right to create mass chaos, anarchy and panic in Jewish owned America is the use of bio-terrorism.

Also recall that one of Pierces followers, the notorious Nevada based microbiologist Wayne Harris, has been arrested twice over the last decade, once for possession of bubonic plague materials and the other for possessing and alleging planning to use anthrax.

Harris claims in one of his writing (available by typing in “Wayne Harris” on Google search engine) that he was warned by an Iraqi woman named Mariam Arif (supposedly the daughter of Iraqs General Arif, murdered by Saddam in a Baath party purge many years ago) that over the years Iraqi women have smuggled in to the U.S. mass quantities of lethal poisons.

Saddam’s Vaginal Monologe: According to Harris Saddam Hussein vials of anthrax and other weapons of mass destruction were smuggled in by Iraqi women who hid the vials in their vaginas. And more ominously that a biological attack on America by Saddam was imminent.

If Pierce and others in the paramilitary right don’t know something the rest of us don’t know, they definitely know more than the U.S. government and the ridiculous “Homeland Security” agency headed by Tom “Beats Me” Ridge. CP
